The Edge of Hell
(1300 West 12th Street, 816-842-4279) is Kansas City's oldest haunted house, meaning that its haunts are more experienced at scaring the shit out of anyone who dares to cross the building's threshold after paying the spooky admission price of $27 to $37. Plus: suspension bridges and slides! With five chilling floors and a cast of 45 professional scare-ifiers, the Edge of Hell is way too scary for little SpongeBobs and Doras — or anyone prone to nightmares — so maybe you should take those kids under 12 to a corn maze or something.
